Refinersfirepresents two-time Grammy nominee French bass-baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer and American pianist Jason Paul Peterson

Refinersfire, an independent music label based outside of Nashville, Tennessee, presents two-time Grammy nominee French bass-baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer and American pianist Jason Paul Peterson in a recital featuring Schumann’s Dichterliebe and the premiere of American composer Michael Linton’s song cycle “Franchetti Songs” Monday, June 24 at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Described by critics as “dazzling” and a revelation”, Crossley-Mercer has risen to become one of his generation’s most sought after singers. The 2018-2019 season has seen him in Hippolyte et Arice in Zurich, Les Boreades in Dijon, the St. Matthew Passion in Lisbon, L’enfance du Christ in Paris,  Orlando Paladin in Munich, and Don Giovanni in Santiago.

Here’s how Opera News headed its review of the Dallas Opera’s 2016 of Manon:

The chief splendor of the evening came from the singers. Baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer turned Manon’s cousin, Lescaut, into a complex dramatic figure, a louche gambler and seducer . . .  [he] proved his ability to combine the delicacy of a voice that has done wonders on the recital stage with a resonant power that projects through the opera hall.

 The French FORUMOPERA wrote this about his performances of Michael Linton’s Carmina Catulli:

Amid this gasping eroticism, the French-Irish baritone, Edwin Crossley-Mercer, acquits himself con brio. What a vocal palette is his! It ranges from the most suffocating sensuality expressed in « Nulla potest mulier », sung in a whisper, as is « Mellitos oculos tuos », to raging anger and a lover’s despair. The singer’s every vocal subtlety is explored, even up to falsetto.

Other critics have described his performances as “dazzling”, and “a revelation.”
